Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Since 2000, advances in nanotechnology have led the rapid development of biotechnology and health technology. The introduction of a variety of nanomaterials to biosensors and biomedical devices has attracted substantial research efforts, because of the tremendous characteristics, including the physical, chemical, electrical, and electrochemical properties of nanoparticles. In addition to the use of nanoparticles in biosensor- and biomedical-devices, they can improve the sensitivity, selectivity, response time, and biocompatibility.

This Special Issue aims to put together a set of original research papers and review papers representing part of the depth of the current research on the recent advances in biosensor- and biomedical-devices with nanoparticles.

Here, we cordially invite you to contribute original research papers aligned with these themes, so as to advance and improve the state-of-the-art in nanoparticle-based biosensors and biomedical devices that lead the new opportunities, approaches, and solutions to next-generation biomedical application and novel biosensor challenges.

Hg2+ ions can accumulate in the natural environment and in organisms, where they cause damage to the central nervous system. Therefore, the detection of Hg2+ ions is essential for monitoring environmental contamination and human health. Herein, we demonstrate a simple method for tuning chemosensor signal ratios that significantly increased chemosensor selectivity for Hg2+ detection. Selectivity tuning was accomplished for chemosensors of the type (diphosphine)Pt(dmit), bearing the two different terminal groups 1,2-bis(diphenylphosphino)ethane (dppe) and 1,2-bis[bis(pentafluorophenyl)phosphino]ethane) (dfppe) due to the modulation of specific intermolecular interactions between the dmit ligand and Hg2+ ion. The structure exhibited a large pseudo-Stokes shift, which was advantageous for the internal reference signal and for eliminating potential artifacts. Straightforward chain-end manipulation enabled the tuning of chemosensor properties without additional chemical alterations. Based on these findings, we propose a new platform for improving the selectivity and sensitivity of colorimetric cation sensors. The results of this study will facilitate the designing of organic materials whose certain properties can be enhanced through precise control of the materials’ chemical hybridization by simple functional end-group manipulation.
